My father's family came from Germany around 1770 settling in Frederick County, Maryland. My mother's family came from England, one line arriving on the Mayflower and others apparently arriving later in Virginia area. I've been working on genealogy since 1967 so have much information but have many brick walls. However, I'm constantly uncovering new data so slowly making holes in the walls. I love to help other people find the same kind of excitement in locating their elusive kin.
